Opera in the Park

June 11, 2003

Last night was a perfect, comfortable summer night to see an opera in the Park, along with 100,000 other New Yorkers. I found it interesting to see how much younger the crowd was at the free opera in Central Park than at the typical Met Opera performance at Lincoln Center. Since I don't know Puccini's Turandot at all, I would have liked to see the Met titles to understand the story. But, life is all about trade-offs. I, for one, enjoyed being able to drink wine (from a plastic cup) while listening to the opera. Yes, I actually do enjoy opera on its own. As a social event, it feels more cultured than my usual hangouts.

I don't have any photos yet. (I need a smaller camera (or bigger pockets.) Robin can't seem to email pictures from his cameraphone at this point. But, Aaron at 601am.com has one: Opera in the Park.
